Social Security Disability Video Hearings Increase, Allsup Reports
Date:6/4/2013

Belleville, IL (PRWEB) June 04, 2013

More than 150,000 video hearings were held for Social Security disability benefits last year. This is a significant increase from the previous year and signals the value of preparation and representation for the hearing, according to Allsup, which has helped more than 200,000 people receive their Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

The Social Security Administration (SSA), which administers the SSDI program, reported 153,592 video hearings in fiscal year 2012, up from 129,775 video hearings in FY 2011. This is an 18 percent increase.

“Social Security plans to use more video hearings to help address the backlog of disability claims,” said Mike Stein, Allsup assistant vice president of claims. “As more SSDI claimants use technology to interact with Social Security, they can benefit from expert understanding of this process with a representative like Allsup.”

The SSA completed 820,484 hearings in FY 2012, and most were in-person hearings. But technology allows administrative law judges (ALJs) to interact with claimants by videoconferencing. The SSA estimates 169,000 video hearings will be held by FY 2014. SSDI is a federally mandated insurance program. It provides monthly income to people under full retirement age (age 65 or older) who can no longer work because of a severe disability expected to last 12 months or is terminal. SSDI is funded by FICA payroll taxes paid by workers and their employers.

During a video hearing, the judge, claimant and representative can see, talk to and hear each other using videoconferencing equipment. The judge usually remains at his location while videoconferencing with the claimant at his or her location.
